Ellwood F. Hoffmann (1885-1966) Home Movie Collection

Ellwood Hoffmann dropped out of school in 6th grade and went to work sweeping the floors at a hosiery mill for 25 cents/week. Eventually, he started his own silk stocking factory in Philadelphia – Lucille Hosiery. He retired at age 50 and pursued his hobbies – tennis, gardening and filmmaking. He visited all 50 states and Mexico and Canada filming with a camera mounted to the dashboard of his car. Many groups, including the horticultural society, invited him to share his films which he narrated with humorous stories. Unfortunately, he was killed in a car accident when he was 80 years old, but his films live on.
